Lucy Keeps Pulling the Football Away

19th June 2012

Last night I knocked over a parked motorcycle with my car. As I left a note, I noticed gas was pouring out onto the street. Came upstairs to open a package containing a vintage tea set I ordered as a birthday gift for a girlfriend, and boom.

This morning, fresh start. I spilled an entire cup of hot tea into my lap while I was driving. Parked at a meter in front of the office, tied a sweater around my waist. I hurried in for a meeting, halfway through which I realized I’d forgotten to plug the meter. Ran back to my car, just as the meter maid was printing a ticket.

What’s going right for you today?
